Got this email today from the "FBI'.
Not that I would fall for this transparent scam, but they might think about hiring someone whose native language is English. LOL
Apparently, now the government is using gmail rather than a .gov email server. Double LOL
...and why is the Washington Field Office handling something in Alabama. Hah, hah!
It's an Alabama phone number, so maybe this redneck needs some scamming lessons.

Spoofed phone number, it would appear. There is no 209 exchange in the 334 area code:

Wonder how they pulled that off?
